Now that's a nice card, all excellent fights on the main card. If only they had a nice championship fight as the main event.

Yeah, I'd say there is a good chance for a brutal KO in every fight on the main card.

Exactly, it'll be one quick night if things go right .

Plus they're all well balanced and relevant fights too.

Okami and Lombard are both long time top 10s with an intriguing style matchup ... grappling wise Okami's got a stifling top game and Lombard's Judo is top notch. On the feet it's Lombard's bombs vs Okami's range and technical jab. I'm more a fan of Okami and think he can edge it out but this is a tough matchup and it's equally likely he's going to sleep.

Hunt vs Struve is just guaranteed fireworks. Either Struve gets KOd again Nelson style and Hunt starts making a run for the title(!) or Struve chokes him out. I'm picking Hunt ftw.

Wanderlei vs Stann is just a guaranteed KO, if anything else happens the universe would explode. I think Stann's got this one.

Gomi and Sanchez, again great matchup, one of Japan's most famous legends against a perennial top 10 LW. Sanchez should get this but it'll be a fun one, probably a fast paced decision.

And Siyar vs DHK, both well rounded, fast rising WW contenders, very tightly matched up. Siyar has been more impressive lately though, so I got him.

Yeah and the fans are awesome too, just so appreciative of the technical aspects. The weird peaceful silences like a tennis or chess match, and the sudden bursts of applause at every good strike, takedown or position improvement.

I am so excited for this card, as all of you are aware I am a huge fan of Asian fighters.

I can't wait to see Hirota,Ho Kang, Gyu Lim, and Tokudome fight for the first time in the UFC. I think all four will win their matches.

I'm probably most excited for Okami/Lombard it's a tough match up for either guy, both guys are solid, though I find Lombard to be a bit overrated and still kind of unproven in a way. Though he is still a threat if he comes in with cardio. And Okami has never done well with being hit by big powerful punchers. I think people are underestimating Okami's wrestling and grappling abilities.

I'm really excited to see Gomi fight Sanchez, it should be an exciting fight. I think we will see Gomi looking more like his old self.

And of course the Stun Gun/Siyar fight will be great, It could really go one of two ways, Siyar could land a vicious punch and end it quickly, or Stun Gun could grapple the crap out of him and win by TKO/Sub/Decision. Stun Gun get's guys back really easy, and controls them there. I think he will get Siyars back and finish him.

I hope Wandy wins, kills me to see him Ko'd in Japan.

And of course I want Hunt to win because I love Hunt.

Also really happy to see Riki Fukuda fight again, I'm hoping he wins this fight and goes on to get someone like Tim Kennedy.

Also really hoping Mizugaki wins his fight.
